These scones never fail. They are easy to make and the recipe can be varied by adding extra ingredients such as a handful of dried fruit and a dessertspoon of sugar or some grated cheese and chopped bacon.

Thanks Marie, I made your Easy Scones as an afterthought whilst working the morning shift in an Aged Care Facility. The residents loved them.

Thanks for that feedback fifi! I am glad the residents enjoyed them. I have made scones from that recipe, sometimes with a variation as I like experimenting now and then, so many times over the years. I think fresh scones are hard to beat.
